Vivienne Westwood is one of few British designers who has truly achieved iconic status. While she made her name during the punk era, her design house is now noted for her unique twist on classic tailoring. This dress from her Anglomania diffusion line is a perfect showcase of her eye for detail and flattering cuts.
The Jersey Scoop Dress builds on a forties silhouette with a modern twist in the draping at the bust. The rich navy shade gives this ideal retro credentials, along with the demure fall of the skirt and low hemline. The sweetheart neckline sticks with the retro theme, while the subtle scoop adds some flare.
